Hublot Classic Fusion Chronograph Yacht Club de Monaco
September 21, 2011
To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Monaco Classic Week, Hublot has created the Classic Fusion Chronograph Yacht Club de Monaco. Hublot has a natural link with the Yacht Club de Monaco, having been appointed the official timekeeper for this prestigious site and its activities in 2005.
The Classic Fusion Chronograph is available in a titanium case, which was chosen for its lightness, shock resistance and corrosion resistance. The classic 45 mm Hublot case features a mixture of brush, satin and polished surfaces, including 10 titanium H-shaped countersunk polished and locked screws.
The dial is deep navy blue, which matches the navy blue alligator strap. Silver-plated chronograph counters in a two register configuration give the watch an appealing classic look. Silver-plated hour markers. Hands are faceted, diamond-polished, skeletonized and rhodium-plated.
The Classic Fusion is powered by the HUB 1143 automatic mechanical chronograph caliber. The movement, which is visible through the sapphire caseback, has 280 components, 59 jewels and a 42-hour power reserve. The bridges have been satin-finished, bevelled and polished. Black PVD screws. The oscillating weight is made in tungsten carbide with a black PVD treated dimpled surface.
The strap is blue gummy alligator stitched onto black rubber with a steel clasp. Water-resistance is 50 meters. Limited to 250 numbered pieces. (Ref. 521.NX.5117.LR YCM11)
